Zeder Investments Limited. JSE: ZED

Zeder shares

Background of Zeder

  • Zeder Investments is an investment holding company with a history of investments in the agribusiness sector of South Africa and greater southern Africa. The group was formed in 2006 when the PSG Group was seeking a way to consolidate its broad portfolio of agribusiness investments. Historically, Zeder has sought to buy non-controlling interests, but has recently focused on making larger investments.

  • Today, key investments include a 27.2% stake of Pioneer Foods, a 98.6% holding in Capespan, a 92.9% interest in Zaad Holdings, a 26.4% stake in Quantum Foods, 55.9% of Agrivision Africa and 39.6% of Kaap Agri. Investments are cumulatively valued at more than R12.2 billion.

  • Zeder Investments shares are up for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), where the group has a market cap of R11.4 billion.

Zeder Shares Growth Driver

  • Over the past few years, Zeder Investments has sought to refine its portfolio by moving from a number of smaller investments to fewer, larger commitments. The company has aimed to buy these larger stakes in order to better influence value creation, strategy, capital allocation and operations of investee companies. The group’s current portfolio provides wide exposure to the agribusiness industry.

  • Zeder’s largest commitment is Pioneer Foods, with the investment valued at more than R7 billion after the group decided to buy an increased stake in 2016. Zeder’s strong financial performance has historically been buoyed by good results from Pioneer Foods. The increased stake in Pioneer was the main reason behind a 49% increase in investment income to R805 million for the year, but a 21% drop in the investee company’s share price resulted in a corresponding drop in Zeder share price. Zeder’s financial data has nevertheless been impressive, with headline earnings per share rising by 20% and dividends rising by 64% to 9 cents per share.

  • This has been due to solid growth registered by the majority of the group’s investee companies, despite the impacts of the drought ravaging South Africa. Zeder’s management is confident that the current portfolio represents a strong and diverse array of agribusinesses, from strategic agri-input companies such as Zaad (which produces seeds) all the way through to fast-moving consumer goods businesses such as Pioneer and Quantum.

  • In addition to securing a larger stake in Pioneer, Zeder has also increased its holding in Capespan (South Africa’s largest fruit exporter) in order to increase the company’s exposure to export markets and foreign currency. A similar export strategy is being implemented at other investee companies.

Zeder Group Investor Tip

  • Zeder Investments shares have historically been a profitable buy for investors. Zeder Investments share price took a dive on the live online JSE stocks chart at the end of 2015, but the company has now achieved a balanced and healthy-looking portfolio which should buoy confidence to buy the shares. As South Africa emerges from drought conditions, investment analysts forecast that Zeder Investments shares could well be a gem of a buy.
